thinking about making a wp site into a multipress site

Hey,

Now that I am using pro sites on a new wp multsite...
I am thinking about turning one of my existing wp sites with 700+ pages and posts into a multisite but am a little scared about it breaking my current blog.

Has anyone changed there exisiting wp site into a multisite? if so did you run into any issues?

    Hey davidloney,

    I haven't done it personally, but I don't see any troubles that could happen. One of the many benefits of Multisite being integrated to the core is the seamless integration.

    Having said that, to be sure, here is what I could suggest and this could be your ultimate test to find it out.

    Make a copy of your existing site:

    - Install a new WordPress on the server maybe on a folder or a spare domain you might have.
    - Copy the database to the new site
    - copy the wp-content folder to the new sites wp-content.

    So now you have a copy, try enabling Multisite and you should see that it works just fine :slight_smile:

    Good luck!
